Together we work to succeed

Parent Survey

Parent Survey

At regular intervals throughout the year, we send out parent questionnaires. This is for a number of purposes.

  • to develop an open and honest relationship with parents and carers

  • to provide feedback on how well the school is providing for the children

  • to support the identification of areas for school development and enable us to prioritise effectively

  • to provide evidence on the effectiveness of the school.


We use the Ofsted Parent and Carers Questionnaire. The statements are:


  1. My child feels safe at this school.

  2. My child is making good progress at this school.

  3. This school meets my child’s particular needs.

  4. This school ensures my child is well looked after.

  5. My child is taught well at this school.

  6. This school helps my child to develop skills in communication, reading, writing and mathematics.

  7. There is a good standard of behaviour at this school.

  8. My child’s lessons are not disrupted by bad behaviour.

  9. This school deals with any cases of bullying effectively. (Bullying includes persistent name-calling, cyber, racist and homophobic bullying).

  10. This school is well led and managed

  11. This school responds well to my concerns.

  12. This school keeps me well informed.

  13. I would recommend this school to another parent.


 This is the outcome of the survey that parents completed during November

We are very pleased with these outcomes and the support we receive from the parents.

We will continue to work on the areas that have lower ‘strongly agree’ percentages. They are:

  1. Ensuring a good standard of behaviour
  2. Ensuring that poor behaviour does not have a negative impact on learning
  3. The way we deal with bullying
  4. How much the school helps parents to support their child’s learning
  5. The way we respond to parental concerns
  6. How we keep parents informed.
